New Jersey Issues Public Health Alert

As we mentioned in a previous article, the State of New Jersey issued a public health alert in an attempt to identify anthrax cases that occurred after September 11 and possible future anthrax cases. The health alert asks hospitals to immedicately begin:

  • Reviewing records of patients who had blood cultures or cerebrospinal fluid cultures performed at presentation and were admitted to an intensive care unit since September 11, 2001.
  • Reviewing the clinical findings of patients with microbiology laboratory results possibly indicating infection with Bacillus anthracis.
  • Reviewing records of emergency department visits for persons with unexplained respiratory failure.

Additional information of this nature may be found at http://www.state.nj.us/health/.
